Under the Import and Export (Electronic Cargo Information) Regulation, a shipper or freight forwarder acting as a shipper (or an agent of either party) is obliged to provide advanced cargo information to Customs and Excise Department (C&ED) at least 30 minutes before cargo being imported into or exported from Hong Kong by truck.
To help industry stakeholders comply with this mandatory requirement, Tradelink has launched its ROCARS solution for customers to submit electronic advanced cargo information (e-ACI), conduct bundling for ROCARS, view earliest allowed boundary crossing date & time and check consignment status until goods crossed boundary, and prepare TDEC subsequently.
- No ROCARS registration required
Customers do not have to register with C&ED for ROCARS as Tradelink will act as their agent. Tradelink TDEC customers will have the ROCARS solution preset by Tradelink automatically.
- Web interface
Users can input data to create and submit e-ACI anytime and anywhere to C&ED via our user-friendly web interface with convenience. With Customs Cargo Reference Number (CCRN) returned from C&ED upon submission of e-ACI, users can subsequently conduct bundling via our web interface anytime and anywhere.
- Quick bundling
Users can input all required cargo and vehicle information for e-ACI and bundling at the same time through our ROCARS solution for e-ACI submission and bundling in one single step.
- Data Inheritance
With the data inheritance function, Tradelink TDEC customers can prepare TDEC from e-ACI easily avoiding the need for repetitive input of common data fields.
- SMS Services
Using this value-adding service, truckers will receive instant SMS messages on their mobile phones informing them of the status of bundling, relevant reference number and earliest allowed crossing time. Truckers can then act accordingly saving both time of shippers and truckers in informing and waiting the bundling status.
- Comply with trade regulations
- Submit e-ACI anytime and anywhere
- Greater convenience with round-the-clock service
- Ensure accuracy avoiding duplicate data entry
